When are fans like you going to learn. It doesn’t matter what coach we have or what coach UF has. They own us completely when it comes to football. Next year will be no different. There will be some fans that say oh UF has a new coach with a new system. We have Heupel and our offense is clicking, UF is down and we can get them. Then when we play they will beat us by 21+.
Honestly, I can’t argue this.🤷‍♂️
GBO!!

Mullen goes 34-15 and is fired. He would have gotten a 5 yr extension here. I'm remembering when Jones got an extension and a raise for going 6-6. High expections keeps a coach's seat warm.
Mullen already got an extension, this year! Now Florida is out 12,000,000 bucks.

Stephens needed the “game of his life” for the Vols to “win a squeaker”? That’s quite a spin.

Gator QB Grossman had the game of HIS life, Witten had his worst game at UT, and refs made multiple bad possession calls against UT (that would have been overturned if video replay was used in 2001). The above was needed to keep UF in that game as Vols OL and DLs/LBs owned the Gators throughout game.

And Stephens was runner up for Doak Walker Award in 2001, actually deserved to win it over the RB from BYU. Some Doak Walker votes were cast before Vol-UF game. UF was one of several great games for Stephens in 2001.

UF was fortunate the 2001 game was even close on the scoreboard, and it didn’t take an out of his mind game by Stephens for the Vol win.
Ok take away Stephens performance. Do we win?

We were unbeaten, ranked and leading a really good Georgia team 21-17 at the half last year with people thinking we were truly back. Then the season got sucked into a black vortex where we got outscored 119-24 over the next 10 quarters and the season went to hell. So we've seen it happen.

I do wonder if Florida is going to be raked over the coals for firing coaches so quickly like we were. Mullen had them in the SECCG last year. We get called unreasonable for firing guys who weren't doing nearly as well as Mullen in this 4 year stretch.
No. The national media will have a totally different outlook with Florida. They will be praised for not settling for mediocrity.
GBO!!

Mullen already got a five year extension, this year! Now Florida is out 12,000,000 bucks.
That's false! Mullen got a 3 yr extension this year. I stand by my statement that he would have gotten a 5 yr extension for being in the top 15 his first 3 years at UT. I'm glad he's gone as he was 5-0 against us. Maybe they will hire Dooley, Jones. or Pruitt?

Yes if he took our shat program to top 15 he would have deserved it here. Florida was in far better shape when he took over then we were at the same time

Yeah it kind of is. Even at our strongest, we could barely beat UF. Butch should have had a 3-4 year winning streak against them. We were the better team thise years. But we imploded. South Carolina and UK have beaten UF more times than we have in the past 10 years.
Should’ve beat them in 2014 and 2015 for sure and 2017
